Forum: GratefulDead Subject: '81 TDIH Fun (and "one of the trippiest videos ever"?)

Here’s some fun fun fun on the ’81 autobahn -- an upbeat, up tempo show with an AUD that will put you right on the floor and glad to be there. The 1st set is solid happy-dance ’81 but not sparkling; the 2nd set goes dancing in the rafters. And boy, you can tell the crowd is feeling it ... listen to the reaction during the S>F jamming!

I DL’d my AUD a while ago and, as is my unfortunate habit, didn’t write down which one. But it's good, and it might be this one. (Yeah, I know, thanks a lot, right?)

And speaking of fun fun fun, this is non-Dead, technically speaking, but someone labeled it “one of the trippiest videos ever,” and ... well, check it out. (And you COULD play it with GD if you prefer.) It’s in two parts. Part one:

Excellent choice. Amazing second set energy. May is an awfully rich month in GD history, and 5/5 is a great example of that.

Something about that just don't sound right. Sounds like a hostage situation or something.

It's been a while since I visited 81, just been too many great TDIH's from the 60's and 70's lately (1972...). But this one's second set sounds like it's worth checking out.

Trippiest ever? Check this from the start of the highly weird flick Enter The Void:

Mind blowing. DMT trip.

(This one is on Netflix if you want to check it out, very odd. American drug dealer in Tokyo gets shot during a police raid and then the rest of the movie is his "spirit" floating about as friends and police deal with his murder with lots of flashbacks and some incest-laden focus on his sister...)

maybe not the trippiest, but there's plenty going on here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0Xa4bHcJu8&;NR=1

Oh LOL. That just sounds wrong.

Yeah, I've been mainly in the 70s and 60s too, between all the TDIHs and E 72s and CM's 76s and so on. (Hey, I bet I could speak almost entirely in numbers and acronyms ...)

My favorite thing about this show is the unique truckin->alabama which has a nicely jammed transition that arises from a quasi-spanish jam. This is a nice example of the tricky question of how preplanned the setlists were. Was this appearance of Alabama Getaway decided during the drum break or was it an inspiration of the moment that Garcia was able to lead the band into? It's hard for me to tell from listening, the decisive moment, musically, seems to happen while the jam is mostly Jerry and the drummers.

It's a really cool sequence. Not being an Alabama fan, though, I'm mixed on whether it ends up bringing the Alabama intro up a notch or whether the Alabama is more of a slam of cold water after the jamming -- honestly, I sort of hear it both ways at the same time!

I wonder if they'd planned the Alabama but then got caught up in that neat almost-Spanish Jam that, in another era, might have gone furthur. Or in another place on the set list/clock ... after all, they're winding up, and a TOO in that spot would mean, what? Then a Stella Blue > Sugar Mag? Definitely a later night! So it could just be Jerry going, "no, not tonight boys, I'm going back to my room soon ... but hold that thought!"

They do the Spanish Jam the next night, and it goes where you'd expect (ultimately into TOO). I haven't heard that show (don't have DP 13) but it's quite a set list, and I see there's an AUD still up. I think I'll give it a spin. I mean, a click :-)

So maybe what we're hearing on 5/5 is a spontaneous Spanish jam emerging in the transition jam that sets the stage for the next night. (You can hear a few Spanish-y riffs at the start of Truckin, too, so someone was in the mood.)

Anyone from California will recognize this guy . Does California travelogue type stuff in his Tennessee "Huckleberry Hound" sort of corny, but lovable spiel .
The vid is OK, but what they did with Huell is great . And the music is not so great, just think what this would be like with "Are You Experienced" in the backround !
